It's not real Tex-Mex but has some pretty good choices of food. If you're here from Texas you'll be disappointed. After a while it works out. Servers are good. Parking at Hoffman is poor.

Stopped in for dinner and drinks after fighting the traffic on the beltway. The food was very good but the beer was not very cold. Overall atmosphere was very inviting.

This is just what you would expect at most above average Mexican restaurants. The Tex-Mex meals are made to please the mass but they are well proportioned, flavorful and inexpensive. They beer selection is good and the el grande Marquita's are the way to go!...More
